ROSEMOUNT, Minn., Oct. 28, 2009—Blue Knights women’s soccer finished the regular season 15–5, setting a record for the best year in the team’s history. After earning a bye in the NJCAA Region XI Tournament, DCTC is set to play Iowa Central Community College in a semifinal game Saturday, Oct. 31, at 3 p.m. at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, on Field 4 at the James W. Cownie Soccer Park.
This season, the Lady Knights beat the Tritons 1–0 at home and 8–0 away, but Head Coach Cam Stoltz is preparing his team for anything. “We have been working very hard on our conditioning,” Stoltz said. “We’re not looking past Iowa Central, but I know that the team is dead set on facing Iowa Western in the finals.”
Rated #5 in the latest NJCAA Div. 1 poll with a 15–0–1 record, IWCC defeated DCTC twice this season, 0–4 at Ames Soccer Park on the college’s Rosemount campus and 1–5 in Iowa. If the Knights make the finals, they will play Sunday, Nov. 1, at 5 p.m. on Field 7 at Cownie Park.
